Amsterdam had many amazing things, including food, to offer. I learned about local cheeses and fish. I really love a good sardine! Little did I know that later when I would go to spain, one of their favorite tapas are marinated sardines in oil. I love to connect different cultures through food. Also, there is a big organic food movement in Amsterdam, and very good Belgain frites! You eat them in a cone with homemade aioli. Other notable things to eat here is the bread, pastries, and also the tea, which is often just a big sprig of mint in a mug. I met some amazing people, and because of the laid back attitude here and certain local habits, everyone is always hungry!
